CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Nevadans have one more day to nominate their favorite in-state destination as part of the Discover Your Nevada tourism campaign.
Online nominations for "Nevada treasures" are being accepted through the end of the day Friday. State tourism officials say they've already received nearly 500 different nominations in six different categories that include Las Vegas, Reno-Tahoe and Cowboy Country.
Next week, several rounds of online voting begin to narrow down the state's favorite sites. The winning destinations will be announced May 15.
The Nevada Commission on Tourism's campaign was launched earlier
this month to promote Nevada among Nevadans. As part of the push, Gov. Brian Sandoval and Lt. Gov. Brian Krolicki will take several road trips of their own around the state.
Nominations can be made at DisoverYourNevada.com.
